STATE JOURNAL. THURSDAY. JULY 2G, 1891.
SEIIATE GIVES
It Accedes to the Request
of the II3U3P.
The Tariff Bill ia Sent Back
to Conference.
MUST HAVE SOME BILL.
This Was the Decision of the
Democratic Caucus.
WAsnrsGTor. July 23. The senate
will accede to the request of the house
for another conference on the tariff
bill, and its conferrees will return to
the meeting- with those of the house
nntrameled by any specific instruc
tions whatever. This was the conclu
sion of the Democratic senatorial
caucus, which adjourned sine die a
few minutes after 5 o'clock yester
day, after a two days' sitting-.
While the caucus did not commit
itself to any definite line of policy
ia so many words, the confer
rees feel with tteir Democratic
colleagues that they understand
what a majority of them desire
and they believe this tJ be that they
shall stand substantially for the sen
ate bilL This is no the individual
preference of many of the Democratic
senators, but it represents the opinion
of moat of them, as express-id in the
caucus, as to trie only practical course
open to the Democrats who think that
the present coDgrvts must pass a
tariff bill of some kind, whether it be
what they prefer or not.
In other words the result of the
caucus is the reascertaiuing of what
was known when the three days' cau
cus closed last March, that it is im
practicable to pass any tariff bill
through the senate which does not
meet the demands of the so-called
conservative senators and the Louisia
na senators.
During- the proceedings the attitude
of the Populist senators, Allen and
Kyle, who have generally voted with
the Democrats on the tarilf bill, was
alluded to, and one of the senators
present stated that he had been au
thorized, by Senator Alien to say that
he thought the bounty on sugar
should be continued for the present.
The suggestion was not received with
favor.
Senators Hill, Mcrphv and Irby
were again absent from the caucus.
There have been few secret confer
ences from which so many conflicting
reports emanated, and it was appar
ent that each senator took away an
understanding- to Kuit himself as to
what implied instructions the confer
ees were under. Some felt that the
senate bill had been adhered to, and
others that the ma n point of differ
ence, the one-eighth of a cent par
pound on refined sjcar, was to be
eliminated and -perhaps a new sugar
schedule presented.
ClFFtltr ON' SUGAR.
Th Ioolibnan Holds His Allegiance to
li is State a 1'araraount.
Washington', July 2G. In the sen
ate yester.lay afternoon Mr. Caffery
of Louisiana took the floor and re
turned his speech of Tuesday after
noon, but his remarks did not arouse
much interest, lie plunged immedi
ately into the question of the compli
cated methods of rsfining- sug-ar in
Louisiana, which sugar went into
competition with the sug-ars refined
by the trust. He contended that
the bounty provision of the McKin
ley law prevented the extensive
refining- of sug-ar by the producer. lis
made an elaborate argument to prove
that, by virtue of the implied contract
made with the sugar producers in the
bounty provision of the existing- law,
the Louisiana sugar people asked no
more than was their due when they
asked for a tariff, ample to
continue the existence of their
industry. lie maintained that
a fair ad valorem rate of 45 per cent
would furnish sufficient protection
both to the producer and the refiner,
lie predicted that the Lousiana cane
grower with the new facilities cominsf
into use would in a c.eoade be able to
hold his own against the sugar pro
ducers of the world.
Louisiana, he said, was a Democratic
state, and did not desire to stand in
the way of tariff reform, but he in
sisted that in marching- to the goal of
tariff reform his party should not
trample the form of his prostrate
state. If the tariff reform measure
aa prepared infringed upon his own
ideas of what should be he should
vote for it, unless it struck down his
own state.
''Do you want a protective duty on
sug-ar?" asked Mr. Stewart. Populist,
of Nevada.
"I dou't," replied Mr. Caffery, em
phaticallr. "I want the duty on
sugar laid purely for revenue pur
poses. The question presented is
whether a great industry, built up
under a revenue tariif. shall be
stricken down by a change of theory."
In concluding he said: "While the po
sition taken by the Louisiana Demo
crats may have sociewhat alienated
them from their Democratic col
leagues, the fire of Democracy still
burned in their breasts. but if
tariff reform was pushed too far. ho
said it in sorrow no; in anger, they
would be compelled to vote -against
the measure."
He also eutered aa emphatic protest
against the provis on in the sugar
schedule continuin.j- in force the Ha
waiian treaty ad.nittiugr sugar
from those isla ids free, which
he said gavn the sugar
trust S5.u0a 000 annually. "As a loyal
Democrat, the position I have been
obliged to taxe ha almost torn my
heart out, but if the alternative
comes, my allegiarce to my state is
paramount."
Mr. Quay gave notice of three
amendments lie she utd offer to the
pending motion before the senate,
first to amend Mr. Vilas' motion, that
the senate recede from the one-eighth
differential in the sugar schedule so
as to recede from the whole of the
Bdg-ar schedule: tie second to add
to Mr. Gray motion that the
enate Insist en all of its araead
menta that it recede from the susrar
schedule, and the thud to add to Mr.
Gray's motion another motion, name
ly: That it recede from the dif
ferential in favor of the refiners.
At 2:33 the senate went into execu
tive session, and aa boar later ad

"Voodlasd, Cal., July 20. Having
made out what they considered a
strong case against the prisoners
Worden and Hatch, the men charged
with having actually ditched the
train, the prosecution in the train
wrecking case yesterday made an ef
fort to fchow conspiracy on the part of
the prisoners Knox, Compton and

i J. It. Hughes, president of the Sac

Hugnes was on the stand nearly all

CHINESE LAND IN COIiEA.
Twelve Thousand Mongolian Troopers
Within Cores'! Domain.
SiiAKGtlAl, July 26. It is reported
the 12,000 Chinese troops which left
Taku on July 20 for Corea, conveyed
by eight gunboats, have lanJed in
Corea, The g-unboats escorting the
the transports had instruct! ons to fire
upon the Japanese if the latter ob
structed the landing of this army.
The other troops, which left Foo
Chow for the Loo Choo islands, ara
also -said to have reached their des
tination in safety.
It is stated that if the report of the
landing of the Chinese troops unop
posed is correct, the prospects of a
peaceful settlement of the disputes
between China and Japan are im
proved, as the Chinese fleet of trans
ports and gunboats could scarcely
have escaped the vigilance of the
Japanese war vessels if the latter had
been preparing to oppose the landing
of the Chinese force. This is said to
show that Japan is now more amena
ble to the counsels of the treaty pow
ers. In galls Talked 1-If teen Minnies.

him later in life. Ilia father was a
prominent street railroad magnate, and
young Singerly displayed such shrewd

father left him $750,000 worth of street

In many enterprises and seems to pos

gold. An illustration of tho manner in
which fortune smiles upon him Is shown
by bi3 experience with the thorough

He has built nearly 1,000 houses in

Bervicea as a philanthropist. Mr. Stokes'
father left an estate of about $8,000,
000, and the son haa devoted a consider
able portion of his share to religions
and philanthropic work. About a year
ago Mr. Stokes finished a quarter of a
centnry of labor aa a member of the
Amercian industrial committee of tho
Y. M. C. A., and for many years ho
has materially ar-sisted the progress of
the association's labors in Europe.
In fact, he initiated the work of the
Y. M. C. A. in wicked Paris about 25
years ago by making pneh arrangements
that the Paris association was able to
meet in rooms of ita own. The ambi
tion of his life thenceforth was to
sea the day when the Paris Y. M. C.
A. should have a palatial building of
its own in the French metropolis. Fcr
years he has labored to carry out this
project, and his efforts have at last been
crowned with access. The building
now stands at 14 Hue Trevise and was
erected at a cost of 1,000,000 francs.
Of this amount Mr. Stokea and mem
bers of his family contributed 400,000
francs, or nearly half.
Among the other contributors were
R. C. Morse, Moi ris K. Jesup, Thomas
K. Cree and Franklin Gaylord, all well
known Americans residing in Paris, and
Alfred Andre, a wealthy Paris banker,
who alone fumi-.hed 200,000 francs to
ward the magnificent structure. The
building ha3 a gymnasium, swimming
